E
It was our third time in New York
It was your fourth time in New York
We were fifth and sixth on the bill
We talked a little about our bands
Talked a little of our future plans
It's not like we were best friends
(Why? What'd you do?)

A          F#m
The number scheme comes back to me
A          F#m
In times beyond our heartbeat

E
We hung around til the final band
Called Escape Is At Hand For The Travellin' Man
You yelled in my ear, 'This music speaks to me.'
They launched into Lonely From Rock and Roll
Followed by They Checked Out An Hour Ago
Closing with All Desires Turn Concrete

A         F#m
Those melodies come back to me
A          F#m                    B
At times beyond our heartbeat

CHORUS:
            E                 B
I guess I'm too slow, yes I'm too,
        E
Yes I'm too slow
             A              C#m     B
But you said anytime of the day was fine
         A              C#m       B    E
You said anytime of the night was also fine

E
I walked through your revolving door
Got no answer on the seventh floor
The elevator gave a low moan
The pigeons sagged the wire with their weight
While listening to the singing chambermaid
She sang They Checked Out An Hour Ago
(And I chuckled...)

A         F#m
Those melodies come back to me
A          F#m
In times beyond our heartbeat

CHORUS:

Our heartbeat
Long conversations or idle chit-chat
Maybe dive in or maybe hang back
Idle conversation or idle chitchat
Maybe dive in or maybe hang back
